Baked Pancakes with Sausages

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2014
Heck yeah! I'd never heard of baked pancakes before....I made some adjustments based on what I had on hand. Firstly, I halved the recipe, and it still made three large servings or six very small ones. I didn't have milk, but I did have a single serving size packet of sour cream that came with a salad that I didn't use, so I mixed that packet with 3/4 of a cup of water and that seems to have worked fine. I used smoked turkey sausage and browned the slices in butter first with some garlic powder and crushed red pepper, and put all of that in the baking pan with the melted butter before pouring the batter in. I used 2 eggs and a little over one cup of brand-name baking mix; next time I'll use a little closer to a cup and a half of baking mix to make it a little fluffier/less eggy - which wasn't bad, but I can improve on a tiny bit. I forgot to add the sugar and vanilla I intended to use, but it didn't matter when served with real maple syrup. I baked it in a 9" round cake pan in a countertop convection oven at 405 for about 15 minutes; I'll add 3-4 minutes to the cooking time next time. I was amazed at how much these fluffed up and how delicious it was. Yay for a fantastic turnout on a first-time attempt at something I had never even heard of!!

Zucchini e Pomodori Gratinati (Zucchini and Tomato Gratin)

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2014
FABulous even without any mozzarella (which I didn't have). I didn't sautee the zucchini first; I greased the baking dish with EVOO and layered the raw zucchini on the bottom, then the tomatoes and topping, and the zucchini cooked exactly how I like it this way. Yummy!! Thanks.

Oven Baked Zucchini Fries

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2014
Yum. For the first time ever, I used the salt, drain, rinse, and dry method to prep the zucchini to extract excess moisture. It made a Huge difference. I cut the (smallish) zucchini in half and then each half into 8 spears. I used half egg white, half olive oil to coat; then half parm, half panko with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. The spears were small enough to stand them up on the skin side (I always leave the skin on, that's where the good stuff is!) and I didn't have to turn them during cooking, and they only took about fifteen minutes to cook to perfection - ten minutes at 425, and five under the broiler. So delicious. Thank you!

Easy Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
go light on the mayo. I used panko bread crumbs and still only got a slight crunch. I would recommend cooking on a raised rack so the bottom of the chicken and the coating doesn't get soggy. I used the baggie method for coating with mayo and then another one for coating with bread crumbs and it worked out well. I also added some garlic powder to the mayo and to the breadcrumbs. My thought is that you can never have too much garlic. This definitely will give you very moist chicken and is forgiving of slight overcooking.

Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2013
I didn't have a can of whole kernel corn so I left that out. I also used only about 1/4 cup of butter, 1/3 cup of Greek yogurt instead of a container of sour cream, and I added one egg and two tablespoons of honey. Baked in a 9" round pan at 350 and it was done in 30 minutes, extremely delicious. Light and fluffy and moist. Served with butter and honey and wow! Thanks.

No-Fuss Cinnamon Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2013
Oh. Heck. Yes. I halved the recipe and didn't measure anything, I just did it until it felt good, which is how I do most of my cooking. Added probably a couple of tablespoons each of honey and lemon juice to the cream cheese, and then spread probably about 1/3 of a cup (remember, I halved the recipe!) of cherry preserves on top of that before putting the top layer of dough on. I also probably only used about half of the amount of sugar called for, in the cheese and on top. Absolutely delicious. Thanks for a great 'starting off point'!!

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2013
I made some changes based on what I had on hand, an allergy, and personal preferences. Scaled down to one serving, plain Greek yogurt instead of mayo, dehydrated onions instead of fresh, walnuts in place of pecans, and left out the celery and raisins. Definitely let this sit at least overnight before eating. Phenomenally delicious on a whole wheat pita.

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
Very good. I did blanch the asparagus, and bundled 2-3 stalks per slice of prosciutto. I used whipped cream cheese since I had it on hand. Delicious.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
I didn't have any cornstarch....so...I skipped it and the water. Into a 1/4 cup measuring cup I put 1 tbsp. brown sugar, 1 tbsp. white sugar, about 1.5 tbsp. molasses, and filled the cup the rest of the way with honey. Used 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup plain vinegar, extra garlic and fresh minced ginger root. These amounts made more than enough to coat 2 leg/thigh combos. Without the cornstarch it was a little slow to thicken; I ended up adding in a little flour and heating the sauce over a slightly higher temp in order to get it going but once it did it thickened nicely. I did end up adding another tablespoon of soy while it was thickening because it was a smidge too sweet but the end result was great. I will definitely make this again. Absolutely delicious.

Appetizer Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
Made with no alterations from the recipe (a rarity for me), except for I halved it, and substituted crushed red pepper for the cayenne (because I didn't have any). Dee-licious! Thanks.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
Very good sauce...I increased the cumin and garlic powder, used chicken bouillon 'faux' broth instead of water, and added a little bit of cocoa powder. Thanks.

Tapenade

So good..I used half kalamata, half canned black olives, and left out the anchovies. Definitely better the second day, especially with the addition of some crumbled feta. Yum! Thanks.

Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Fantastic!!!! I didn't have Provolone, so I used some parmesan. Didn't have tarragon so I used a few shakes of parsley. Used 2 tbsp. of lemon juice in place of fresh and zest. I also put a few tablespoons of the sauce inside the chicken with the asparagus. Used the recipe as written and had just enough sauce for the three very large chicken breast halves I had...and the sauce was so delicious, I might go ahead and double it next time because this was wonderful as it was, and more would be even better! The first roll, I forgot to put the sauce on before the bread crumbs, so I just put some sauce right over the bread crumbs, and then more bread crumbs on top of that, and the coating on that one came out with deeper and more even coloring on it than the other two I did in the correct order. Super delicious either way, my friends raved, thank you thank you thank you!!!!

Vicki's Hush Puppies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
This is great..my personal preference is a little more moist, and a LOT less sugar next time. I halved the recipe, and I added about 1/3 of a cup of buttermilk to the dough, and it was still not quite enough. I also cut the sugar to 3tbsp and it was still too sweet; again, all personal preference. Thank you!

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
My first Hollandaise from scratch and it turned out really well! I didn't have Dijon so I used a small amount of powdered mustard instead. Bright and lemony and very easy to make. Thank you.

Barbecue Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
I needed to use up some leftover roast and followed this recipe almost exactly, scaling for 1 lb of beef instead of 4. I did wish there were just a little more sauce, but doubling it as suggested might have made it too messy....but that's just me. The taste was fantastic, good balance of flavors that still let the meat itself taste delicious. I definitely recommend serving this on garlic-butter toast. Thank you!

Slow-Cooker Posole

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
This is absolutely delicious...I omitted the cayenne pepper and substituted one roasted, peeled and diced each jalapeno and poblano peppers, and added a few shakes of cumin. Glad I used the mild enchilada sauce! The peppers I added gave it the perfect kick. Eating it make me sweat just a little bit....perfect. Tomorrow I'm going to make Fry Bread to go with the leftovers...yum.
